Rebuilding That Which is Diminished

As Christian writers, or perhaps as WRITERS, do we ever feel we have bitten into a morsel we cannot chew, (let alone swallow, digest and use as nourishment)? Do we ever imagine ourselves in the wrong place at the wrong time with the wrong message? Are we ever tempted to quit? And do we ever quit?

If we do, it is a mechanical exercise. We put down the pen, wad the last useless sheet, or we stand up and walk away from the typewriter or computer. We have labeled that chapter "THE END", and we move on, relieved that we have shaken that persistent, lifelong, parasitic monkey off our back.

How long does 'retirement' last?

First, we feel our message needs an outlet regardless of how poorly received it may have been. Next we consider what triggered our demise. Was it personal, overwhelming circumstances? We wrote through worse...did our best work in times of tribulation. Why NOW do we feel handcuffed by situations?

How do we rebuild that which has diminished? We have thoughts of those trying times in the past, when we wrote ABOUT our trials, not about how we were defeated or diminished BY them. We sanely reevaluate where we have been, measuring it closely against where we'd like to be. If our role comes up short, if we feel unfulfilled, we write more...we MUST.

We grasp that which brought satisfaction and pleasure regardless of how slight or what pain we waded through to get there and we starty again. We rebuild that which has diminished.

Hard to do? Yes, but nowhere near impossible. We evolve from each episode of tragedy with new strength and refreshed purpose. This zeal might be fleeting, but we cannot allow it to escape! Rebuild that which has diminished with confidence, courage, and the knowledge that someone you have never met is waiting for your thoughts to get back on track, to assist you by their supportive reading as YOU rebuild that which has diminished.

We write about faith. As FaithWriters, it should be our purpose, our business, our reason for being to exercise that commodity about which we write.

If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
